Italian government in crisis as Renzi calls for change
By James Mackenzie ROME (Reuters) - Italian center-left leader Matteo Renzi called on Prime Minister Enrico Letta to step down on Thursday and said their party, the biggest in the ruling coalition, should choose a new premier to lead the government. After weeks of tension between the two main figures in the center-left Democratic Party (PD), the biggest in the ruling coalition, Renzi's call for change appeared to seal the fate of Letta, who did not attend the PD meeting called to discuss whether the party should continue to support Letta. Renzi acknowledged that forcing Letta to go and trying to form a new government with the centrist and center-right parties that backed his coalition carried risks for both the government and himself personally, but said there was no alternative. Renzi said he would seek the support of the current coalition partners and his proposal was for a government which would last a full parliamentary term until 2018.
